UPDATE: Planned Maintainance (27FEB19)
#1
Hello all,

Just a quick announcement. During the night on May 1st, the forum may be down for some planned maintenance. An update of the MyBB forum software is released and the plan is to make the updates that night. I do not think it will impact anyone since not many users right now seem to traffic the forum in the middle of the night, however, I am making this announcement in the event that someone might. The update is migrating from MyBB 1.8.19 to MyBB 1.8.20. I plan to start the updating process sometime around 2300 pacific time (maybe later depending on the kids). My hope is that this will not take long and be a smooth transition. However, this is my first time performing an upgrade on MyBB, so I am unclear of how long the process will take. Hopefully after this update, in the future I hope I will be able to give a solid window for any future planned maintenance such as this.

During the night, I might also be improving some more functionality on the administration side of things that night also as time allows. If I am able to get to this, this should not impact the forum. First priority will be upgrade of MyBB.

Thank you,
Todd
